On Tuesday we took a drive in the desert to visit a few sites we haven’t been to in many years. Some of the roads were different, some new, some the same rutted gravel we remember, but the views are timeless. Fort rock, a sentinel in the distance, Paulina Peak with all back roads aiming for it, the ponderosas giving way to lodgepoles who in turn give way to junipers, then to sagebrush. The lava flows are as craggy and inhospitable as they have been for millenia. We explored the cool depths of ‘Crack in the Ground’, aptly named.
